The IEA DSM (Demand-Side Management) Programme is an international collaboration of countries working together to develop and promote opportunities for demand-side management.RAP’s participation is led by Richard Cowart, Programme Director for RAP-Europe, and Rick Weston, RAP’s Programme Director for China. RAP works closedly with internationally-renowned power and DSM experts, such as David Crossley and Eoin Lees. The March 2012 IEA DSM Spotlight Newsletter highlights this exciting collaboration.
